We've been awarded $388,375.00 for a LED underground trail lighting project from the governments Rural Dividend Grant for Special Circumstances. It’s pretty exciting; we’ve got some work ahead of us to get the job done.
Building won’t begin till spring of 2019 as there are a number of regulatory hoops to
jump through; but we’re super excited to have this grant.
Thanks to Neil for envisioning and moving the project forward. Thanks to Maryanne for working with Neil and for going to meetings to drum up support from the CRD, the District and other groups. (They created a slide show to showcase what we have and what we do.) Thanks to Annie for crunching the numbers so that Kathleen (thanks Kathleen) could write the actual grant proposal!
The 99 Mile Trails are her ‘home’ during the winter… she has finished twenty six 50km Cariboo Marathons… and has been a loyal member of the Nordics since at least 1998.
Janet Wright, born March 30th, 1939, celebrated skiing 1000km in the classic tracks during the 2015/16 season on February 27, 2016! This lady is an ‘institution’ on the 99 Mile Trails and certainly an inspiration to all of us. Janet was raised on a ranch with eight siblings and moved from 141 Mile to the 108 Mile Ranch in 1998 to be closer to good cross country skiing!
The Lundsbye family thoroughly enjoyed the 99 Mile Trails on a fantastic, mild, spring-like day!

Baby Kurt was very cozy, bundled up in the pulk - which is available at the Day Lodge - and had no desire to get out! Father Jens surely got his work-out, Kimberly and Karl just took their skis off after spending some time on the trails! Way to go, perfect family fun at the Nordics' Winter Activity Centre
